    Seems like Apple's order system is taking a beating (as usual with any new product). After about 90 minutes, I was able to place my order for a 64GB white model.

    Any of you have any luck? How far along in the process did you get before Apple smashed your hopes and dreams?

    Nice! You'd think Apple would up the server bandwidth for pre-orders.

    I kept trying on 3 different computers. Finally managed to get through using the Apple Store app on my phone. Ordered the 32GB Black AT&T 4G.

    Took me about 30 minutes to order 16GB Verizon 4G version.
    Now all I have to do is ship iPad2 16GB I sold on eBay for $410 this morning and wait a week for new one.
    Why wait on line when I can have it delivered to my front door?

    No preorder for me.

    I'm eyeing the Verizon 64B version. By working rewards from my credit card and local grocery store, I can save about 12.5% if I buy it from a store where my grocery store sells gift cards to - in this case, Best Buy. The "apple" of my eye (heh, heh) will cost me about $900. By buying $900 in Best Buy gift cards at the grocery store, I will get an additional $27 in CC rewards, and the gas savings will total around $87. Okay, I may have to wait in line for a while, or worst case wait a couple of weeks if I order it online, but I just can't justify spending an extra $114 to have it a week early!

    Yup took me about 60 minutes or so to finally get an iPad in my cart. I opted to go all-out this time with a 64gb (Verizon) 4G white model since I went 16gb wifi only with my iPad2.

    I got mine preordered. Do I have to sign for it or will it be left at my door while I work?

    I'm having mine delivered to work. I think there is an option to pre-sign and leave your package under the order tab.
